Mid-20s Malaise

Struggling against the inevitable since 1986!

Ugens Sang: Magic Kids – Phone

This band is about as twee as you can get. I love twee pop: sunny indie songs with ukuleles and glockenspiels and lyrics about kittens and sunshine. Some people find it disingenuous or irritating, and I don’t begrudge them that opinion: twee pop is certainly an acquired taste. Magic Kids are a bunch of seven friends from suburban America, having a great time writing adorable songs. This song – the lead track from their debut album Memphis – sounds like a gorgeous Beach Boys/Boy Least Likely To mash-up.

If this song doesn’t make you smile, you’re dead inside.
